Istanbulsh*t: Dave Says Turkey EU Membership “Not Remotely on the Cards”

Yesterday Cameron told the House of Commons Liaison Committee:

“I don’t think that the accession of Turkey to the European Union is remotely on the cards. I don’t think it will happen for decades. The facts are it requires unanimity of all European Union members… so I’d say very clearly to people, if your vote in this referendum is being influenced by considerations about Turkish membership of the EU, don’t think about it. It’s not remotely on the cards.”


Just a few years ago Dave told his Turkish counterparts:

“I will remain your strongest possible advocate for EU membership… this is something I feel very strongly and very passionately about. Together I want to pave the road from Ankara to Brussels.”

Remember, Brussels has just agreed to lift visa requirements for Turkish citizens across the EU and accelerate accession negotiations as soon as possible. “Not remotely on the cards,” Dave is telling voters…

UPDATE: A European Commission press release fired off yesterday completely disproves Cameron’s statement:

“the accession process will be re-energised, with Chapter 33 to be opened during the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union and preparatory work on the opening of other chapters to continue at an accelerated pace”
